Get Out: Hang out in the Hammock

What is more relaxing and outdoorsy than lying in a hammock?
Look at those little people! Those are my (first) three sons and FishPapa about ten years ago. We splurged and bought a hammock and stand, about $200 total at Target. It was a huge expense, but seeing as both have lasted TEN years, I guess it was a good investment, after all.
Lying in a hammock has been one of my favorite pasttimes. Hammocks are perfect for cuddling, reading, sharing deep thoughts , and staring at the sky.
They can also be pretty portable. My mom picked up a cheap cord hammock for one of our family vacations when I was a kid. She hung it between two trees, making the perfect spot to lie and read a book.
Okay, if a hammock is really out of the question, lay a blanket on the grass. Spend time cuddling, finding shapes in the clouds, counting the stars, and chatting about the day. If the weather is still on the cool side, bundle up.
You’ll be surprised at what a relaxing, outdoorsy thing a hammock can be.
